Ryan Adams Homeless?

2007_06_radams.jpgWe admit we were stoked earlier this week by the news that Ryan Adams would be doing a show at The Black Orchid. However we thought it was a little weird that ticketing information for the show seemed spotty. It was listed on WXRT's site ... and then it wasn't. And on Ryan Adams' own website, it was the only show with no info on how to get tickets, and now it has completely disappeared. Phone calls to The Black Orchid only met with a message saying they had no information on the show. What's up?

Well, it turns out The Black Orchid is closed so Adams and his merry crew of Cardinals are scrambling to secure another room in which to play. There's no word on whether tickets will actually go on sale tomorrow though Ticketmaster, even though they were listed as doing so. We think it'd be a little hard to sell tickets to a show when you don't know where it's going to be or how many people you call them too.

If Ryan really needs a place to play, our basement is nice, and we'll even pay for the P.A.!
